Sponsor a Child

Every child is special—uniquely made by God.

We aspire to love each child as God does, and help them receive: good health, good skills, good relationships—and the opportunity to hear the Good News.

Here’s how:

STEP 1 Choose a child

Choose the child you’d like to connect with and sponsor them. They’ll attend a programme run by the local church to learn, grow, play and develop.
